It was a long flight. I can always tell by the number of inflight movies I end up watching before we touch down. This was about a three movie and one documentary trip. We spent a wonderful week in Hawaii with my parents and my brother’s family. The sky was blue. The sea was warm. […]
I didn’t know my grandmother very well. She lived half a world away in South Korea. They say she was beautiful. They say she was organised and kind. I wish I knew her better. But I ran out of time. Via the Daily Post Photo Challenge #52: Regret
